Can someone please tell me where text/mms messages are stored. I have a bunch of pictures that I don't necessarily want to save to my phone but I do want to hang on to temporarily. Being the flash happy fool that I am I would like to transfer those texts and mms to what ever rom I am on for that day. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

If you're such a flash happy fool, you should know by now how to backup and restore your messages. The Web is full of "how to's".

Actually I do know how to back up my text messages but the problem is the mms messages. When I restore the mms it doesn't restore the pictures. But thanks for playing.

Nah no loved one doing a check-up, lol. Does titanium back do mms messages also. I haven't used it since I had my Evo Lte and it would only restore text not mms.

Because the messages are stored deeply in the file system. Don't think that anybody does backup and restore them like this. Yes, titanium does restore sms and mms.
